Leinster got off to a winning start against Munster in their opening game in the Schools Inter Provincial tie at Donnybrook
Leinster 11, Munster 3.
Both sides made a very nervous opening to this their first Schools Inter Provincial tie of the season. It was Leinster who settled first and went into the lead with their number eight Harrison Brewer being credited with the touch down.
Last season’s Crescent College Comprehensive Junior skipper Gearoid Lyons
opened Munster’s account with a penalty.
In a poor second half two penalties from Leinster’s out half Conor McKeon made sure of victory for the home side.
Harrison Brewer try, Conor McLeon 2 pens. Munster:
Gearoid Lyons pen.
